The vines of the Barbera, Plana and Viader plots have deep soil with a clay loam texture, which provides us with freshness and elegance. The Monestrell plot, situated on the terraces on Serral hill, marks the De Nit sparkling wine with its personality.
A year defined by extreme contrasts due to our Mediterranean climate. Autumn was hot and very damp (308L/m2). Winter was cold with a heavy snowfall on 4 February that left up to 10 cm of snow on some parts of the estate. Spring had a cool start with a night frost on 9 April that caused 5% of the Xarel·lo buds from la Vinya dels Fòssils to freeze as it is a north-facing vineyard. All of this combined with just 62 L/m2 of rainfall between January and July, created some extreme conditions for the vegetative development; the varieties that adapted best to these conditions were Xarel·lo, Sumoll and Monastrell.
